paul ryan. congressman paul ryan, is he the leader of the republican party now? >> oh, i wouldn't think so. paul ryan's a policy wonk. he's involved in the cause of trying to bring us pro-growth, economic agenda to america and making sure that we're doing this in a fiscally responsible way. >> reporter: there have been a lot of republican comments, rush limbaugh said -- >> i went to bed last night thinking we've lost the country. >> reporter: we lost the country, we're outnumbered. al cardenas has said, the party has got, these are his words, too old, too white and too male. is that right? >> well, i think what republicans need to learn is how do we speak to all americans? you know, not just the people who look like us and act like us, but how do we speak to all americans? >> the powerful speaker of the house of representatives, john boehner. that was just today and i'm here now with jonathan karl, who has covered the campaign, covers congress for us. what did you hear, jon? >> reporter: he said raising tax rates is unacceptable. let me tell you, there is an entirely different view of t
oklahoma republican tom cole, what does he think about mitt romney and paul ryan losing this election? his take away is this. the paul ryan budget passed a pretty big test. we had to run around the country and defend it. the ryan budget proved itself a viable platform on which to run and be reelected. wow. just to reiterate, this is what happened on election night. how does this constitute the ryan budget passing a big test. it took a big test but it did not pass that test, two very deficit things. the lesson of this election for republicans appears to be all that stuff we ran on, it totally worked. think about what determines what the republican party does next. what determines how they fix their political problems. the question of who is going to be the new face of the republican party and how they will course correct after this disastrously bad election for them, it all depends how they assess what just went wrong and why it went so wrong. what do they think their problem is that caused the country to reject them so emphatically in 2012. the signs how their self-assessment is going so f
. if there is anybody that comes across as the big loser of this election season, it's not mitt romney or paul ryan it has got to be karl rove. he prides himself as being the smartest man in american politics. he did get george bushel elected as governor and george bush elected as president but then he bragged about -- he was going to create the permanent republican majority and he sold that crap in the white house, and people believed him. did it work? hum, i don't think so. >> yeah how did that work? >> i don't think john mccain got elected, did he? >> no, i don't remember him winning. >> and i don't remember this guy -- mitt romney getting elected either. so then karl rove comes up with this american cross roads idea. of course the supreme court gave him a big give in citizens united, so they could raise this millions and millions and millions of dollars, and support all right-wing candidates and throw them into senate races, house races and the presidential race. and then karl rove goes on and some of the stuff he said -- he was so wrong. it's unbelievable. the "washington post
're on with fred barnes of the "weekly standard." caller: bob. yes, you said that paul ryan is a good candidate for the future? the guy couldn't even tell the truth about his marathon run, and then he takes a tour of a soup kitchen, and he cleans up after the place is closed. romney, i mean, my god the guy lied throughout campaign, and you would actually support a guy who lies to the american people about jobs going to china with the jeep? host: how did paul ryan do on the campaign trail? guest: well, i thought he did extremely well and i thought he flubbed that news about the marathon but if he did it in the time he said he would be on a marathon-running circuit. that was just a mistake. he hadn't run it in about is 1 -- in about 11-12 years. i know paul ryan. paul ryan is not a liar. and with mitt romney, the whole question about the jeeps, there's a dispute whether chrysler, which owns jeeps jeep is going to have to go to italy. there's a story about that. on the china issue overall for romney, that was an issue that didn't work. there are issues that poll well, but when you try to rely on t
was paul ryan the wrong pick as his v.p. choice? in the sense that you just had another middle class white guy and it maybe just sent the wrong image to american voters about what the party now represented. >> well, you know, of course there's, as we look to the future, we want to improve upon these results, the face of the country is changing. i think paul ryan is a remarkable leader. he was a terrific pick and did a great job but as the country continues to change, i think you're going to see the next generation of leaders on the republican side emerge. >> the key battle now for barack obama in his second term will be how does he get some kind of bipartisan momentum going, particularly on the economy and this is your wheelhouse right now. you've got some pretty firm ideas about how to prevent the fiscal cliff becoming a reality. tell me about that. >> well, we need to avoid the fiscal cliff. as the nonpartisan congressional budget office said, it will reduce gdp by almost 3% and keep in mind it's only 2% now so that means going negative, going back to recession. they predicted that unemp
neutral publicly but considers a royal ally and congressman paul ryan who is supporting price. last night ryan responded to boehner's memorable line about whether ryan may step up and lead the republican party. >> i wouldn't think so. paul ryan is a policy -- >> i take that as a great compliment from john. i've been one of the house policy wonks. my role is to continue to be a champion of ideas. >> conservative blogger eric erickson is among those who think ryan should step up. he wrote in his influential blog, quote, john boehner has been willing to throw his conference under the bus repeatedly. house republicans should think very carefully if the faux tan face of john boehner is the face they want for their party the next two years. they should consider paul ryan as their speaker. that is ideological shots fired, if you will. and finally in a few minutes we do expect to hear from which party maine senator elect angus king will caucus with. interestingly enough we know of no one-on-one meetings. this is exactly what everyone has assumed the entire time that he will caucus with the democr
blue collar and older whites. even with paul ryan on the ticket, a 60% of seniors voted for romney. in the long run, i think those red states are problematic for democrats. look at north carolina. in north carolina or virginia, obama's numbers among blue- collar whites are unbelievably low. they are in the high-20's or 30's. in the long run, i do think there is this pattern. the sun belt will be more important than the west about. they do have the incredible ability to hang on to -- the shift will be to states that have the same social forces of rising diversity and rising education levels. >> we have a slight disagreement. obama did well among these groups in 2008. democrats do well among white blue-collar voters in the midwest. there are union presidents and other things that give them a boost. there is a slight fracture of the automobile bailout. ohio did not look that different. i think of no bailout might have helped a bit around the edges. boy, running against and john mccain in 2008, barack obama did well among those groups in those states. he did well in iowa. he overperfor
differently. there rummy and paul ryan are good man and the leaders. i want to wish them and their families well. the american people have spoken. they have reelected president obama and they have reelected the putt -- a republican majority. there is a mandate in yesterday's results and a mandate to find a way to work together on the solutions to the challenges will face as a nation. a message today is not one of confrontation but one of conviction. in the weeks and months ahead we face a series of tremendous challenges and opportunities. there is the fiscal cliff. a combination of spending cuts and tax increases mandated by law. congress will be asked to raise the nation's debt ceiling. legislation will be needed to keep the government running as a continuing resolution under which we are currently operating. amid this short-term hurdles we face the greatest challenge of all. a massive debt that is smothering growth and exceeding the entire size of our economy. there will be many who will say that we should confront the first of these challenges by letting the tax rates expire and pushing
, pro-life core, he lost to bernie sanders in vermont. paul ryan, who called rape just another method of conception, paul ryan did win back his house seat, but he lost the vice presidency in rather spectacular fashion. and tom smith, who thinks getting pregnant out of wedlock is totally similar to getting pregnant by being raped, just put yourself in the father's position, he lost his u.s. senate bid to incumbent democratic senator bob casey of pennsylvania. republicans who were forced to campaign on their anti-abortion politics, by and large, did not fare well this year. but by all means, republicans, follow the anti-abortion movement's advice and campaign harder on your abortion politics next time. really. really, go for that one third of the electorate that thinks they agree with you on this issue before they've heard you really explain it. maybe you can petition to change the rules of mathematics so that 36% will add up to a majority. regardless, definitely talk more about rape, you guys. keep it up. ry to stump some political junkies with questions from bing elections. do you kno
, and remember when paul ryan after the 2010 elections, he was an icon for them, came back to the freshmen and said we cannot do the budget cuts we promised you right now. they threw him out of the room. they are not 6 " to be eager to do that. you can gain significant leverage by moving in that direction, and it would not surprise me that obama has a couple of cards up his sleeve to turn the bully pulpit into a more potent weapon in the next month. >> there are other ways of doing that. one is i think he will have simpson and bowles by his side on this. he has already committed to using that as the framework. there is evidence around that the white house has been working on revisions to that, giving it some specifics that would make it palatable to him and to most democrats as well, and there is also an effort to begin to pull out some major figures in the business community to be at his side. he would not go off the cliff without first having demonstrated what an agreement with book like -- would look like, and having it will support, including potentially some senate republicans with hi
, but we will not come with fixed positions. it was the paul ryan budget that said essentially privatize social security and use a voucher for medicare. i do not think the public wants that. in their reelection, they said let's tackle these issues but not in a punitive way. host: the next call for sander levin comes from alexandria, virginia. independent. caller: i just want to share with you and congressman that i think we are having the wrong conversation about taxes. we keep talking about the reduction in rates, tax rates, but as a percentage of gdp, we are paying less than just about everyone else in the industrialized world except for mexico, chile and turkey. we cannot sustain this and try to grow, increase in the structure, research and development, improve our education system -- it is just not a reality. turkey, chile and mexico. that is who we are competing with as a percentage of gdp. we all need to pay more so we can get more from it. host: what would it look like for you personally? what would you be willing to pay? caller: thank you. i would be willing to pay another 10% or
eastwood episode. did not change a lot of minds. the selection of paul ryan was a pretty strong selection. he turned out to be a very strong campaigner. i think he certainly please the conservative base. on the other hand, the challenger did not win wisconsin so didn't pay off in that regard. but the first debate absolutely did pay off. romney came in very well prepared for a lot of people who predisposed to not like him, he came off as presidential, very smart, very comfortable with himself, and clearly it was obvious that the president had prepared for the wrong debate. he clearly had prepared for romney to take a host of positions that he did not push forward in that first debate. romney had his chance for a comeback. he just was not able to keep it going in the debates that followed. now, three quick and narratives that turned out to be true about the american public. one is a think americans want to be hopeful. during an election like this, they want to be inspired to want to be told the world can be better. this is the main reason obama was elected the first time around. it was a lo
and paul ryan and pages dedicated to the inauguration and join the administration. it was taken by the way this morning. and "new york times" political statistician nate silver correctly predicted the election outcome in all 50 states. you probably know that by now. now his book that explains how he does it, well, it is selling big-time. the signal and the noise has skyrocketed to number two on amazon's best seller list. like nate silver, the people on "park and recreation" got the election night outcome right. now a guest appearance by vice president joe biden was filmed, and take a look. >> i just remembered, i kind of got you an engagement present? >> is it a waffle tower? >> it's a little better than that. >> how did you do this? >> i called in a few favors. ♪ ♪ hi dad. many years from now, when the subaru is theirs... hey. you missed a spot. ...i'll look back on this day and laugh. love. it's what makes a subaru, a subaru. that was me... the day i learned i had to start insulin for my type 2 diabetes. me... thinking my only option was the vial and syringe dad used. and me... disco

deal than paul ryan budget deal. elections have consequences. karen capehart, did you expect anything this big this fast? bill kristol is influential with republicans in washington. i'm stunned with what i'm hearing? >> i almost fell out of my chair when boehner said revenues. the idea of increasing revenues. that's a central argument that we have been having over the last four years, and the very expensive i told you so i guess. if we're going to get to this problem, we have to deal with revenues, we can't just do it all on the spending side. >> jonathan capehart, there is bill kristol teaching republicans how to talk about this. but it does involve a word for word refutation of what they said in the past, that higher rates will kill the economy. there is bill kristol pointing out how we've done perfectly fine under higher rates in the past. >> what he's trying to get through to republicans, particularly the new class that came in in 2010, okay, you campaigned on all of these promises, but now it's time to govern and things have come to a standstill in washington over the last two ye

[applause] we have the nucleus. to go on and really make a difference. and that is what all of us hope to do and that is what we have to aspire to do. so ladies and gentlemen, it is my last time but i want to give you the irish prayer.

[cheers and applause] >> thank you very much. thank you so much for all your help. i look out at all of you and you all made phone calls and all knocked on doors an
job in the senate, just like we will do here in the house. >> why is mitt romney and paul ryan -- why did they lose and the republicans lost seats in the house and senate? what do think the republican party needs to do to make sure it doesn't happen again? >> can you identify yourself? >> jonathan with the new york times. >> i think that is a great question. many of us are looking and thinking about that. i do not think we lost by being too conservative and articulating our principles to clearly. it was the opposite. the 2010 election was a way the election, a tremendous response from the same folks that propelled the symbol latest republican majority in decades. i do not think the turn of the diamonds and we do not want to cut spending, balance our budget, that is not what they said. eisler margin of 51%, the president was reelected -- by a very slim margin of 51%, the president was reelected. not just the folks that breed the wall street journal, no disrespect, but there are millions of other americans who have not heard what we believe and and the value of limited government. i do
administration working or not working with paul ryan who will be returning to congress or the gang of six or simpson bowels anybody who wrestled around the with with the issue how you're going to make progress long-term on medicare costs with alzheimer's. again, now 6 million people and dislr 172 billion. thirty years from now 25 million people and annual cost of trillion dollars for a cumulative cost between now and 2050 $20 trillion. that's a lot of money. and all of the market forces and empowerment and everything better management, aren't going to change the fact if people are in a state of dimension for twenty years in a nursing home, it's a a labor intensive and very costly process. and i think it's very unfortunately that these issues did not get raised during the campaign. my friend in the audience started up a group called the american center for course which has been pushing the idea that the cure is cheaper than care. it's cheaper to beat a disease than treat a disease. and so, you know, [inaudible] it's a robust topic. i apologize for that. i do think that maybe this is just w
can get along. there's a space here to do it. >> anxious to see the role paul ryan is going to play. republican hand wringing. this sandy business, they've got to stop. is it getting a little absurd? >> they have to think over things. you have two warring camps. mcdonnell was confrontational. people are lining up behind him. what they lack is a leader, a leader who can step up. jeb bush might be able to do it, but there is no leader that can unite these camps. >> democrats, 1988. shameless plug. you first? >> my brother and his wife, my sister-in-law had a new child on election day morning. family is very happy. new nephew. >> very nice, and his name is ballot. >> my shameless plug is for the white house press pool who unfailingly was working hard all through this election. no one saw them. on election day, the call time was 6:00 a.m. they ended at 3:00 a.m. and had three hours sleep the night before. >> never met him. nate silver, "new york times" >> very nice. that's it. got to go. chris jansing, see you. buy. r 2000... r 2000... 1200 calories a day. carbs are bad. carbs are good.
sandy. christie insists that's nonsense. that he worked harder, with the possible exception of paul ryan, to try to get mitt romney elected. george? >> thanks, jon. >>> we turn to nicolle wallace. top adviser to the mccain and bush campaigns. you see some of the lashing out. >> for the love of god, leave chris christie alone. he's our best hope. you know, geez. >> some people looking at the romney campaign, saying they blew it. but you argue that the problems are much deeper than that. >> republicans either have to look at the map and say, we saw plenty of red, keep doing the same thing. or they have to decide they want to win national elections. if you want to win national elections, you know, you have to change everything. you have to decide we want to and we can compete everywhere. and you should be able to compete everywhere, with a message of economic opportunity. but you can't simply pass on the debates about all of the social issues. >> not only everywhere, but with everyone. i saw al cardenas, the head of the conservative union say, the party's too old, too white, too male. >> i
we can get them. [inaudible] the role that you believe paul ryan should play in this fiscal negotiation, what would you like him to do? and how influential do you think you will be on your group? >> i mean, i think, i hope he's front and center with this group because, or in this debate. these probably are best spokesperson i have serious fiscal situation is and what needs to be done to remedy it, put us back on the path we can ask or sustain. i was, i think all of us were impressed with how paul handled himself on the campaign trail. so i hope he's right in in the middle of it. my anticipation is he is going to be, i assume that's where my colleagues are as well. >> if i can just add to that. when you step back and look at the election results and look at some of the conclusions that some have drawn, we are going to need clear voices of leadership to lay out an agenda for the future. i think all is a very important part of that. actually i was glad to see him come back into conference. it was an extremely well in -- warm welcome with a double standing ovation for him. but w
the election, paul ryan came out very strongly in favor of tom price. suggesting that the -- if tom price wins then paul ryan, his credibility is sort of juiced, will go up in terms of his influence on -- on the republican conference. if price wins it might signal a more conservative, hard-edged bent to the republicans. if mcmorris rodgers wins, it might signal the leadership is starting to get this house in order and wanting to moderate some -- at least its approach. host: hear from chris, republican caller, joining us from round lake, illinois. good morning. chris: good morning. thank you for taking my call. i have a question here. as a fiscal cliff comes and you are discussing what to do with it, with social security and medicare, i was wondering why the public employees in congress and senators don't pay into that system, why they are eliminated from it. host: we are running out of time before the house comes in. our caller bringing up one of the many issues that we'll be addressing as we watch the lame duck session. thank you so much for coming in on a busy morning for roll call. house ed
you have to change the basic structure of medicare, as paul ryan -- medicaid, as paul ryan does. i think you can find great, great savings by working the inefficiencies. anyone that's gone through it knows the inefficiencies in the system. they're just incredible. >> excuse me. john. >> speaker boehner yesterday talked about not increasing tax rates on small businesses. so if that framework could be accomplished, what kind of revenues could be raised within that framework, from your point of view? and could you consider the limit on the value of deductions that the president had in his budget? >> well, first, in terms of small businesses, how do you define a small business and that's again one of the sort of slippery slopes a little bit. do you define a multibillion dollar entertainment company, sports team or hedge fund as a small business because their structure happens to be a business structure? and so i think there's -- i think everyone agrees what we really mean when we say small business, what the typical voter envisions when we mean small business, the local dry cleaner, th
the next vice president of the united states, paul ryan. >> stamped with three proud words, made in the u.s.a. >> comedian david alan grier joins us this morning. there were funny moments, drowned out by negativity. what do you think, as you look back? >> there were a lot of funny moments. i like the republican debates, in particular. it's not like i have a pocketful of jokes, but i talk a lot about president obama. he looked tired in the first debate because he actually has a job. like he's running stuff. and then i think well, maybe he already knows their strategy, their ground game, that the election is already over. he's going to take ohio and florida won't even be a question. maybe that's why he was so relaxed. >> do comedians look at things like a presidential election in regards of where they stand ideologically, boy if so-and-so is elected this will be much better for me? because this person is funny? would romney have been a better candidate funnywise? >> yeah. barack obama is so cool and calm and reserved. you know, he's not going to have that crazy moment. i was of two minds. i
utterance of tea party from mitt romney or paul ryan. that's right. you need to hug that tea party closer. >> i guess the tea party is with thing angst. >> what? >> stephanie: let's dive in the right-wing world. phil o'reillybill o'reilly. this is the deal. >> when you bunch it all up together, it was an entightment vote this year. american families earning less than $3,000 a year broke big for the president. 62%. so it's clear that left wing ideology did not win the day for barack obama. big spending. >> gotcha. we still won es. there's that. >> stephanie: dennis miller. >> do i ever think it will go back in my lifetime to the other way? no i don't. this is the america that i saw from 18 to 58, no, i don't. is that the end of the world? no, it's not like i was in the shower and found a lump in my armpit. that's my fall-back position. i've got a great life but it's not the america that i've grown comfortable with. >> stephanie: wow. >> at least i didn't get cancer. nothing funnier than cancer. >> stephanie: sean hannity. >> we got to get rid of the immigration issue all together. it's eas
